I'm Gabriella, an outdoor photographer currently living in Lake Tahoe, California. 

I recently moved to Lake Tahoe after living in Los Angeles for 6 years.  Lake Tahoe's natural beauty has inspired me over the years and as of August 2019, I made the decision to live here full time.


Originally from New York,  I moved to Los Angeles California in 2013.  Shortly after moving west I developed a passion for traveling, spending time in nature, and capturing the beauty of my surroundings through photography.  I began taking photography more seriously and in 2016 purchased my first DSLR camera.  I continue to develop my skills and grow as a photographer every day.  I truly find that the learning process is a constant, no matter where you are in the game.  


On this site, you’ll find content related to photography, adventure, travel, and the outdoors.  I hope that you find it to be helpful, informative, and visually inspiring.  If you have any questions or would like to know more I would love for you to get in touch.

  • I grew up one hour north of New York City, went to college at Northeastern University in Boston, and then lived in NYC for several years before moving to Los Angeles in 2013.
  • I didn’t get into photography until I moved to LA.  Before that, I don’t think I took a picture with anything besides one of those disposable cameras and my phone.
  • I'm also a painter but these days photography is my main form of artistic expression.
  • My favorite lens is my Tamron 28-300mm f3.5 because it's versatile, light, small, and has pretty bokeh.
  • My favorite part of the photography process is editing.  I find it to be the most fun, exciting, and artistic part.​
  • My next big move would be to Hawaii or Spain.
  • I got into photography after moving out west.  I started spending more time outdoors, hiking often, and taking lots of road-trips.  I found California to be a visually inspiring place and enjoyed capturing its beauty through photography.
